people like grover nor norquist, and i know there is no love lost, but he's saying people on the right are having impure thoughts about potentially raising taxes, do you frng that grover norquist, his anti-tax pledge, is seeping back into the conversation here and keeping the right with the cement shoes on? >> sure, for some that's the case. and it is also the case that some on our left have their shoes in concrete, as well. they don't want to touch any spending. but the hard reality is we have to do both and every bipartisan group that's worked on this has reached that conclusion. so at the end of the day, i think people who are in the sensible center know you're going to have to come bodo both. revenue near a 60 year low as a share of our national income. spending is near a 60 year high as a share of our national income. so we're going to have to work both sides of the krequation. >> senators on the right have been very controversial in their remarks regarding susan rice and whether or not she will be nominated for secretary of state. but i want to play for everybody how the presiden
